Having just got a Desire S, what criteria are you using for your testing/analysis?
I'm impressed by the handset, screen is super sharp and it chugs along fine. Loads of apps open and its still very responsive. Camera is good and opens all types of media.
I thinks its great and having only paid £354, its a steal.
Parents are to blame.
"developing the concept of so-called "ID Assurance""
Waste of money!
Parents can already filer content, they just dont know how too.
So instead, those who put the n in cuts, want to regulate, instead of taking action against the parent.
There's no difference between needing a driving licence to drive a car, and parents needing to learn how to use filers and apply them.
stupid tory cut
What a masterbater. Silly tory cut.
Boy are people thick!
Maybe we should insist that people have a computer licence, similar to the driving licence?
Lets make sure the number of these halfwits is kept to a minimum.
What a pile of shite.
Not bloody likely.
My "supposed" peers are as thick as a fat birds thigh.
More money wasted to get a "panel" to conclude that renewables are not sufficeint to produce required engery needs.
We knew that before hand. When will people realise, micro generation will only suppliment our energy needs. I'd love to put some solar panels and a turbine on my property. Selling energy back to the grid means cheaper bills for centrally generated supplies and a lower demand on the grid, lower CO2 emisions from my energy consumption. Multiply this by every household in the country = less centrally generated energy required. Better micro generation and enegry storage would certainly help.
Cost is the key. Lower production costs would definately see more people take up mcro generation. The problem is most people don't have £3K+ for the initial set up. Pay back takes years, but once in place, future energy production becomes free.
pot meet kettle
"They also allege copying of the colors and rectangular shape of the Apple products."
Of course, no other mobile in history was "rectangular" or "black" pre the iphoney!
Apple produced 2 decent products (the phone and the Mac), that weren't just hype'd up, but were sold as a way of life. Of course thats going to sustain them, isn't it?
Gap in the mar ket?
For a phone that just works without trying to trace me, or forward my details to someone else, or any other underhanded trick.
Was going to upgrade my Nokia, but to what?
iPhone (waste of calories even typing the name)
Droid (just giving the same info to Google and not Jobby)
WM7 (what, like microsoft aren't doing the same thing?)
Seems if you want a smartphone, you have to give up your privacy!
Unless anyone can suggest otherwise?
Parents, what are parents?
tech is heavily used by our kids, because todays parents can't be bothered to be a parent, instead letting the web babysit their sibblings.
Oi! Tosspot! Read a book to your kids, play with them, talk to them, take an interest. Maybe you will become worth more to your kids than their facebook/twitter account, iphreak or DSi.
Why ask that question here?
Surely the first thing to spring into your head would be OFCOM or at least a regulator.
Tho the article does read Femto cells are "intelligent enough" not to cause interference, boosters are not.
Take Heed Profiteers
"......By analysing purchasing behaviour you can spot lapsed customers who could be resuscitated back to profit."
Any company who does this to me will forever loose my custom. I don't need you to tell me what to buy or where to buy it from. More and more people will fall into line as they become annoyed a being "targeted" in this manner.
Heavily advertised products/services really loose their appeal, unless of course your feeble of mind or easily sucked in and follow the heard (e.g. apple).
<let the bile flow>
Only in USA!
"subscriptions to the Dish Network package have tripled since he started giving away pistols and shotguns last autumn"
WOAH, WTF? Talk about sdrawkcab. Well done yanks, we already think your a bit "woo hoo" and now you know why!
What a bunch of wankers. You know why these itmes are "lost/stolen"?
Because they do not belong to the employee, and they don not take any care for it. Notice how these people do not lose their own equipment.
The employee should pay for the replacement. More care would be taken then.
When will they learn?
A LYING TORY? Never!
1st in that que
......what a piece of crap facebook is and how the great unwashed who all use it get what they deserve for using facebook !
You said it.
brit tries to screw brit shocker!
Hardly surprising tho is it? Our young are raised believing that this is acceptable.
Maybe a more fitting title would be appropriate, "Wellripyouoff.com" perhaps.
Road safety starts with parents.
Tell your "little darlings" to keep off the road! Its for cars and they will smush you first and stop later.
When I was a kid the green cross code man taught road safety.
Cuts prevent this, and no we have "safety" cameras which every one knows are just revenue generators.
Parents shouting otherwise really need to look hard at they way they are parenting and stop the relentless push to have the rest of us bringing up and being responsible for your mistakes.
Just don't trust what an English parent says or does! Plain and Simple!
regardless of the blurb
I still can't stop feeling mistrust of the reporter. Too many contradictions, too one sided.
Maybe a better direction
would be to LISTEN to what the people are saying, the violence was due to thuggery which you'll never get rid of because society encourages it. Like it or not!
After all were all* brought up to believe that your only a man if your use your fists.
(*depending no how educated your parents are)
Since when was it illegal for me to rip my CD's onto my computer?
I was under the impression if you owned the discs, you can 'convert' them into an alternative format.!
I'm sure you'll tell me if this is incorrect.
but 99% are!
Waste of my money
Why did she have to read fro a hideously expensive idevice, when cheaper models are available that do the same and more?
Status, thats why. The ill-conceived idea that is perpetuated by the media that owning an idevice makes you something "better" than the norm.
I makes you a twat! And an even bigger twat to waste pubic monies on crap like that.
just realise it was fking snowing heavy!
Cancelled journey, boo hoo!
Why do the brit assume that we should be prepared for every eventuality, yet not want to pay for it?
Just take it on the chin, fate didn't want you to travel. Else don't winge when ticket prices shoot up to pay for the huge investment in equipment that may be used for 1 week out of 52.
You cant have it all.
"The PlayBook – the iPad challenger" Who said?
Lies lies and more lies
Who do you believe? El Reg and Co saying that its all going to be OK, or the rest of the news media who proclaim it's a disaster?
Neither of them!
Lying English Scum
"The MEPs said Europol's rubber stamping of data requests was a betrayal of promises made last year."
What? You really BELIEVE ANTHING an English politician says? If you do, you are an Ass.
The issue shouldn't be reffered anywhere. The persons responsible for sending this info wants hauled up and prosecuted, and the US told to piss off. Who the Fk do they think they are. Maybe a legal case is needed to be brought against ALL those involved in this, USA and UK.
USELESS ENGLISH TWATS will let the yanks have anything.
Typical Apple arrogance
"Regulators could, and probably would, insist on Apple opening up its platform eventually"
But they willl put their own barriers in place which will cause inconvenience to everyone from the outset, until forced to do the right thing! Clever eh?
I've been saying it for years
and I've said it numerous times on El Reg. The British are THICK! DIM! Completely STUPID.
You just have to read some of the comments made by El Reg 'readers' to see that.
At least 50% can't even spell or read properly. We done British parents. (Applause)
If ever proof were needed
...that these silly old men have NO IDEA and that the government / house of lords is outdated, there you are.
Get rid of the money grabbing, stupid, dirty ole men!
Even cameron STINKS, I can smell him from here.
Oi! Vlad ole son
Just pay up and shop demonstrating your TOTAL lack of understanding and immorality. Do you really think is right that hard working failies have to pay full tax, when a company has made £B's and worms thier way to paying (next to) NOWT.
Your position is analogous to saying:
Fiddling with a kiddie is OK because loopholes in the law allow you to do so without punishment.
ITS JUST WRONG and shameful to you, your advocates and other tax AVOIDERS.
(A mans worth is not financial, its his morals, and many "humans" in this god forsaken country do not know this)
JUST PLAIN WRONG
Those who are advocates of basically getting out of paying their dues are morally bankrupt and should be named and shamed.
It's not a case of doing it because it's legal. You have a moral obligation to pay what is reasonably expected.
It is not reasonable to create loophole to exploit in order to AVOID paying what is due.
What would happen if we all took steps to avoid paying what's due? The government's position would be very different and you would not find it so easy to AVOID paying what you ACTUALLY owe.
So it comes down to getting away with paying pittance because you WANT to AVOID paying your fair share. You all know it, you just don't want people to think you are as tight as a fish's arsehole, or morally bankrupt as a paedophile (even though we all know that you are).
Well done if you voted to allow the Condems to continue with the degradation of morality in our society. (And we all wonder why England is in severe social decline, tut!)
NO, no no no no no
What, I need to read your "bible"?
Fk off, I've not read the bible, and not reading this crap either!
I hardly need to be told about my beliefs from a book which is basically bashing another book.
Stop wasting my time, i'm busy with my pint.
Typical bull from religious types
"Our sense of what is right and wrong can be directly traced back religious teachings."
Thats bullshit mate. I haven't had any religious teaching and I know that its wrong to kill.
Look at the comment made in the first/second paragraph of the article which clearly states that the Jewish community want people to LIE to get more jewish faith schools.
Without religious teaching, I know that to deliberately lie through your front teeth for your own ill gotten gains is WRONG!
Well done to the jewish community for giving us a practicle demonstration of just how corrupt religion and religious types actually are! (applause)
Proof of English idiocy
Of course hiding cigs and making the packet plain is going to stop smokers smoking!
So hiding drink would stop people from drinking? I think not!
So if you really think that not smoking is going to prolong your life, your a very sad individual indeed (and likely voted for the condems).
And my response to "jake's, Only Question" is, did you think about what you were going to say before you said it? What a fking stupid question! Maybe because people enjoy it? Perhaps?, Maybe?, Possibly? What not ask yourself why more 1000's more people drink!
Why are the english just soooo fking stupid, hypocritical, lying, cheating, moaning, greedy, selfish, worthless toerags?
(and if any ones comments about "educating" people, they need a slap)
Further explaination needed
"flags that they have they posted something out of character"
Again, Further explanation needed
"It is true that users with no prior history of suicidal tendencies or other mental illness "
I read this as, people who have contemplated suicide have a mental illness. Is this really what you mean, and if so, WTF?
what a big pile of steaming shite, from said
"Let's face facts - being a civil servant is a lot like being on the dole - except that they don't need to scratch on every week.
The British Civil Service truly are the cancer of this nation."
Oh, I never realised that those who sign on have so much work to do!
STUPID ENGLISH TWAT NEEDS HIS HEAD KICKED IN!
Lets ensure that shit like this isn't allowed to make policy, or we are all fucked.
